To find the formula of the detergent tablet that he uses to wash his clothes, thousands of washing machines have had to be placed. Hundreds of researchers have checked, through X-rays, the clothes washed again and again with different components, to see if the original whiteness and color were maintained.

They put an average of 280 washing machines and do more than 1,000 studies. The year is a total of 25,000 washes, 250,000 spots, according to your data.

"Not only is the product evaluated to remove a stain, but also to maintain whiteness, to protect the color, that after washing there is no yellow layer," explains the head of the department, xxxxxxx. 10% of the stains that are on the clothes are environmental, another 20% accidental (we drop the coffee on top, for example) but there is another 70% of dirt that comes from inside and does not go away.
